The South Pier light, seen in the image above, seems to be somewhat more substantial and in a generally better state of repair.  It also gives an impression of greater permanence, at least in so far as it doesn't seem to be about to disappear into the sea sometime in the next couple of minutes..  The image below shows the harbour entrance from the south with both lights in shot.  It also gives a better impression of the scale of the "crevasse" between the north pier and the detached block at the end, and the way in which it has almost undercut the light itself.
